Dental implants from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ are the ideal solution for missing teeth: they are strong, protect the health of your jawbone, and can last a lifetime.
Sometimes there’s a little confusion over the term “dental implant.” It means the metal post that is inserted into your jaw. Usually made of titanium or zirconia, the post literally fuses with the bone. Once it does it creates a solid foundation for one or more artificial teeth.
The artificial teeth supported by dental implants are also meant ot be long-lasting. The crown is the part you bite and chew with, and with proper care they can last fifteen to twenty years. Proper care is about the same as with natural teeth: daily flossing and brushing, and regular checkups.
A connecting piece between the implant and artifiical tooth, called an abutment, may also need to be replaced.
But the actual implant can last a lifetime; their success rate is greater than ninety percent. Cases of rejection by the body are rare. As good as this success rate it, it is expected to get even better in the years ahead as the technology continues to impmrove.
